Frequently Asked Questions

What happens at Tryouts?

North Snohomish Little League uses a player tryout process to determine eligibility and skill level.

When the player arrives at the tryouts they will be directed to the registration table. Only players who are paid registrants prior to tryouts will be allowed to participate in the tryouts. The players will all be given an identification number to attach to the back of their shirt, and then directed to the warm-up area for their age group. Please remember to return your number to the check in table prior to leaving tryouts, your number will be used for the second day of tryouts. It is important for your player to have their number visuable that has been assigned to them, this is how the coaches identify the players and how they will select players in the draft.

Each player will in turn be evaluated on the following:

  1. Catching long fly balls
  2. Long throw after catching the fly balls
  3. Relaying throws from one player to another
  4. Fielding ground balls and throwing to first base
  5. Playing first base and receiving throws
  6. Batting

For those interested there will be pitching and catching drills as time allows.

During each activity the players are evaluated by the managers and coaches from each division. Each manager and coach has his own style and preference, but they are all evaluating skill, results, effort, and attitude.

What if it rains or I can't make the tryout day?

North Snohomish Little League holds tryouts on turf fields, so tryouts will be held rain or shine. While we strongly recommend that each player attend both tryouts, attendance is only required at one tryout. If your player cannot make a tryout please email the NSLL Board at
